NY Times Offering FREE Unlimited Access to Storm Coverage.
To Our Readers:
During this emergency, The New York Times is providing unlimited free access to storm coverage on nytimes.com and its mobile apps.
Usually, their site IS free for a few minutes, but then they "ask you for a little sugar" to keep reading.
That fee has been lifted for as long as this emergency lasts.
Here's an interesting thought:
NEW YORK (AP) - The nation's biggest subway system was ordered shut down as Hurricane Irene bore down Friday, potentially paralyzing movement for millions of carless people even as more than 300,000 were told to evacuate to safer places.
The unprecedented orders, which affect New Yorkers from the Bronx's most distant reaches down through Manhattan and out to the beaches of Brooklyn and Queens, dealt the congested metropolis a formidable logistical challenge that raised more questions than it resolved:
Where are all of those people in New York's flood-prone areas supposed to go? And, more pointedly, how are they going to get there - especially since many don't own a car?
Subways, buses and trains in one of the world's largest public transportation systems were to stop running at noon Saturday. Bridges and tunnels also could be closed as the storm approaches, clogging traffic in an already congested city.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
